Early Co. teen arrested for burglary

BLAKELY, GA (WALB) - Early County Sheriff's investigators say 18-year-old Dentavious Thornton remains in jail on a burglary charge.

Neighbors spotted Thornton going into and coming out of a home with a safe on Weaver Drive on Tuesday afternoon just before 5:30.

Thornton dropped what turned out to be an empty safe when neighbors yelled at him.

He ran off, but was captured coming out of some nearby woods about 30 minutes later, by a sheriff's investigator.
